Quote of the Day


"Surely that man must be in an unhealthy state of soul who can think of all that Jesus suffered, and yet cling to those sins for which that suffering was undergone. It was sin that wove the crown of thorns; it was sin that pierced our Lord's hands and feet and side; it was sin that brought Him to Gethsemane and Calvary, to the cross and to the grave. Cold must be our hearts if we do not hate sin and labour to get rid of it, though we may have to cut off the right hand and pluck out the right eye in doing it."
-J.C. Ryle, quoted by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Holiness
